You can use Flash's multimedia capabilities to create powerful presentations that include both audio and video. If your application uses audio to convey information, you must provide the same information visually to make it accessible to users who are deaf or have hearing impairments. The best way to do this is with synchronized captioning. Captioning also benefits visual learners without hearing impairments.
In this lesson, you will learn about the Section 508 requirements for making Flash applications accessible to users who are deaf or have hearing impairments. You will be introduced to several approaches to captioning in Flash, as well as to some of the tools and services that are available to help you.
